I need to provision a server to host Dynamics GP 2010 for approximately 13 users with plans for approximately 10-15 more users in the next 3 years. I've taken a look at RemoteApp and XenApp but have yet to come to a clean decision about which one will work best for us. We would like to have the applications running directly off the server hardware with a terminal services-type connection back to the user. I've taken a look at the system requirements for Dynamics GP 2010 (http://www.microsoft.com/dynamics/en/us/using/gp-system-requirements.aspx
) and from what I gather I'll require 2GB RAM/2GB HD space per user. As for processor requirements, I'm unsure.
For initial hardware I was thinking:
Two quad core xeon processors
Six 146GB HDDs
Everything will be stored on the SAN minus host files. This machine will most likely be involved with App-V and some other application based hosting in the future.
What are my options? Do I seem to be on the right track?
